The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds. The round 18 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

Winner League top team - Maccabi T-A (17-1) added another victory to their record on Sunday. This time they beat tenth ranked Hapoel Holon (6-12) in Tel-Aviv 73-66. The hosts trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 18-9 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Americans were the main players on the court. Swingman Devin Smith (196-83, college: Virginia) scored 18 points and 9 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and center Shawn James (207-83, college: Northeastern) chipped in 12 points, 10 rebounds and 4 blocks during the contest. Maccabi T-A's coach David Blatt used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was forward Frank Hassell (203-88, college: ODU) with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 16 rebounds. Maccabi T-A have an impressive 15-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 17-1 record. Hapoel Holon at the other side dropped to the eleventh place with 12 games lost. Maccabi T-A's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tel-Aviv to the arena Hapoel Tel-Aviv.
An interesting game took place in Rosh Pina where higher ranked GreenTops Netanya (9-9) was upset on the court of eleventh ranked Galil Gilboa (7-11) 96-75. The former international Dagan Yavzuri (193-85) notched 20 points, 5 assists and 4 steals (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) to lead the effort and Jamar Smith supported him with 22 points. Galil Gilboa's coach Lior Lubin felt very confident that he used 10 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists by American power forward Marco Killingsworth (203-82, college: Indiana, agency: Avi Zilberman) did not help to save the game for GreenTops Netanya. Galil Gilboa moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Hapoel T-A and Maccabi Ashdod. GreenTops Netanya at the other side keeps the fifth position with nine games lost. They share it with Maccabi Rishon. Galil Gilboa will play against Maccabi Ashdod (#10) on the road in the next round. GreenTops Netanya will play against Hapoel Eilat (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 18: Maccabi Ashdod lost to Maccabi Haifa on the opponent's court 85-95. Bottom-ranked Elizur Ashkelon unfortunately lost to Hapoel J-M in a home game 66-76. Hapoel T-A recorded a loss to Hapoel Eilat on the road 59-76. Maccabi Rishon defeated Bnei Hasharon on its own court 88-82.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 24 points and 13 rebounds by James Thomas of Maccabi Haifa.



Maccabi Haifa - Maccabi Ashdod 95-85

Very expected game when 8th ranked Maccabi Ashdod (7-11) was defeated on the road by fourth ranked Maccabi Haifa (11-7) 95-85. The game was mostly controlled by Maccabi Haifa. Maccabi Ashdod was better in third quarter 26-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Maccabi Haifa shot 61.8 percent from the field. Maccabi Haifa had a 31-18 advantage in offensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 24 assists. Maccabi Ashdod was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. American power forward James Thomas (205-80, college: Texas) notched a double-double by scoring 24 points and 13 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and international point guard Gal Mekel (190-88, college: Wichita St.) supported him with 18 points and 9 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Maccabi Haifa's coach Brad Greenberg allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 27 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists by American guard Mardy Collins (198-84, college: Temple) did not help to save the game for Maccabi Ashdod. His fellow American import forward Diamon Simpson (201-87, college: St.Mary's, CA) added 19 points and 11 rebounds. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Maccabi Haifa moved-up to second place, which they share with Hapoel J-M and Hapoel Eilat. Maccabi Ashdod at the other side keeps the eighth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Galil Gilboa and Hapoel T-A. Maccabi Haifa will play against Bnei Hasharon (#7) in Hod Hasharon in the next round where they are favorite. Maccabi Ashdod will play at home against Galil Gilboa in Rosh Pina and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Elizur Ashkelon - Hapoel J-M 66-76

Very predictable result when third ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (11-7) defeated on the road bottom-ranked Ironi Ashkelon (5-13) 76-66. Ironi Ashkelon was ahead by 1 point at the halftime before a 30-19 second half run of Hapoel Jerusalem. Hapoel Jerusalem had a 34-23 advantage in offensive rebounds.

Forward Craig Smith (201-83, college: Boston Coll.) notched 16 points and 7 rebounds to lead the effort and Josh Duncan (203-86) supported him with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Even a double-double of 14 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists by swingman Julien Mills (193-85, college: Ball St.) did not help to save the game for Ironi Ashkelon. Swingman Jarvis Hayes (201-81, college: Georgia, agency: David Lee services) added 19 points. Four Ironi Ashkelon players scored in double figures. Hapoel Jerusalem have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Eilat. Ironi Ashkelon lost seventh consecutive game.

Hapoel Eilat - Hapoel T-A 76-59

Not a big story in a game when 9th ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv (7-11) was defeated on the road by third ranked Hapoel Eilat (11-7) 76-59. Hapoel Tel-Aviv was ahead by 5 points at the halftime before a 42-20 second half run of Hapoel Eilat. They outrebounded Hapoel Tel-Aviv 38-23 including 25 on the defensive glass.

Hapoel Eilat moved-up to second place, which they share with Hapoel J-M and Maccabi Haifa. Hapoel Tel-Aviv at the other side, also newcomer in the league, dropped to the eighth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Galil Gilboa and Maccabi Ashdod.
